  ProfileI am a producer / director currently based on the Sunshine Coast and am looking for my nextgreat adventure. I am a very creative person who needs to be challenged. I can handle adeadline and perform well under pressure. I am a worker bee and I don’t buy into officepolitics. I am honest and open, frank when necessary and always able and willing to listen. Iacquire knowledge quickly and am constantly looking for ways to improve. I have learnt asmuch as I can from my current position - I need to spread my wings, and I need a change inwork and in life in general. I am married and a father of three and would be looking to locatesomewhere to raise my children and prosper. As a father, I believe the only way to inspire yourchildren to do great things is to aspire to them yourself. I am committed to doing this, and italways is and always will be reflected in my work I produce. My ideal position would be withina creative department working on multi-platform campaigns as I believe this is where my talentand skills can be utilised best, and what will most interest me in the future.Experience Commercial Producer, WIN TELEVISION Sunshine Coast, QLD, 2007-PresentIn this position, I take television and video products from brief to final delivery. While themajority of our work consists of TVC production, we do also work on corporate and webvideos, events coverage, news broadcast preparations, and programming content. I workdirectly with the client; concept television campaigns; write copy; budget and co-ordinateshoots, then carry them out, incorporating the camera operation, lighting and audio recording.I work with other camera operators and assistants, direct visual and vocal talent on locationand collaborate with other directors remotely. I complete all graphical, audio and video post-production. While it may seem undesirable to be working in this manner, I believe it has given asolid ground to work from; aside from the obvious ability to be a multi-tasked operator, I canappreciate every step of the process because I have worked through them all.I believe these skills help set me apart from a lot of other creatives. ENG Camera Operator, WIN TELEVISION Sunshine Coast QLD, 2002-2007 (freelance/full-time) I learnt the basics principles of camera operation and editing through my years in this position.This position required the gathering of news for nightly local bulletins in the Sunshine Coastarea, as well as providing coverage for affiliate stations nationwide. This included the cameraoperation and editing of news footage from pre-scheduled stories to breaking news.It obviously required a fairly competent, confident and sensible approach to all my duties asresources were minimum and deadlines were absolute. The nature of this work has given methe ability to work fast, adapt and visualise on the job while always being able to see the workfrom an end product view. It has taken the fear out of deadlines for me, and has given me theedge to “do” rather than pine over how impossible a task is. Camera Operator, PARAMOUNT VIDEO PRODUCTIONS Gold Coast QLD, 2003-2004I completed production work in corporate and domestic video productions on a freelance basisand continued my training in those areas. Producer, NEW PITCH PROMOTIONS Gold Coast QLD, 2003-2004This was part of a government production for emerging media professionals. I acted as cameraoperator and editor on production of corporate videos for three charities on the Gold Coast. Producer, REGIMENT 137 PRODUCTIONS Gold Coast QLD, 2003-2004This was a small company I established to produce domestic video productions and eventscoverage. It gave me a lot of time behind the camera and in front of the computer and I don’tbelieve I would be where I am today without it.Curriculum Vitae BRENDANBOWEN producer / director tel  0419 741 441email   usbowens@internode.on.netweb  School RoadMaroochydore, QLD 4558  SkillsãCreative, visual approach to everything I do.ãHard-working, “will do” attitude, eagerness to learn, team player and lone wolf if needed.ãMultitasking is what I do every day.
